Scouting Report on Marcus Roberson

by Barry Every - 11/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Long and lean defensive back with hips on a swivel. He definitely has the physical look of a point guard.
Needs Improvement: His ability to come up in run support and make the big hit. Adding some strength should help him in this area along with keeping his head up and sinking his hips into the ballcarrier.
Most Impressive: For being so tall he has a smooth backpedal and the ability to pounce. His ball skills are tremendous and he does a nice job of keeping the receiver in front of him at all times. He has enough size and versatility to play some free safety along with cornerback. Roberson has the coveted height to combat taller receivers.
Conclusion: Could see early playing time in nickel and dime situations. He has all the tools to become a difference maker while earning all-conference honors.
